President of SOS Children’s Villages International Dereje Wordofa called for ending the war in Gaza where children’s rights are being violated daily.

“The destruction in Gaza exposes the failings of world governments in safeguarding children and ensuring their rights,” Wordofa said.

He also called on all parties to ensure that civilians are not targeted and are protected from harm and that they receive immediate access to humanitarian assistance – food, water, medicine, and shelter. 

“Children have a fundamental right to be protected from violence, abduction, and the trauma of war.”
